Random Sock Memories
I’m creating a film about people from overseas seeking work in the UK - their experiences, how they traveled here, what they sacrificed (like family contact, finances, security) how British people have reacted to their presence and any prejudice/ examples of goodwill that they have encountered.
This is a film aiming to question the stigma of immigrant employment in the UK and how people that risk everything to come to a free country are treated by those that were born here. There is no hidden agenda with this film, just a simple story of one or two peoples experience of life in the UK.
I will be creating the film in both English and the Native language of the participant. And may require subtitle assistance.
I will need to interview the participant and film/ photograph over a cup of tea.
An ideal participant would be; Any age, male or female from Europe that has travelled to the UK for work in the last 20 years. Located near Bristol (UK) or is willing to hold a recorded video chat. Is free to participate in the next 2-3 weeks. And is interested in this project - I could always use some advice or suggestions.
I’m an animator, and the interview will be a casual conversation where we can discuss a variety of topics about this project. If you would like to see any of my work, you can check out my website here: http://www.harrietfarren.com for examples of my film making style.
If you know of anyone interested, or can think of any suggestions, please get in contact tumblr.
if anyone can help out my dear friend Farren please let her know through her blog, a really cool opportunity here!
And today we had another session with Emma Sij (@Emmanuellaaa), we’re almost finished now! Here’s her and Sophie (@sophomalley) being all creative and well-lit.
Last Saturday, we recorded Swinging For Mars and had a jolly good time.
They even brought us a Krispy Kreme dozen. What lovely guys!
We also shot lots of video so expect that soon!

VINYL SALES HIT 15 YEAR HIGH
Industry bible Music Week is quoting an IFPI report which says that sales of vinyl records hit $177 million in 2012, their highest level since 1997. (This may be as much because the cost of vinyl records seems to have rocketed to the point where an album can easily cost £25, as it is because more units are being sold.) CS
